Oh, well that explains it..

Foley alleges he was abused by clergyman

Oh, alright, we understand then. Why didn't you just say that in the first place. Which diocese should we sue for you? Any particular prelate you want to accuse, while we're at it? Bernardin is conveniently dead, and Weakland would be an easy mark as well.

/ sarcasm.

The whole thing stinks to me, both the timing of the revelations, and the political posturing afterwards. It makes sense that he'd use the Church to try and deflect some of the fecal splatter. Cue Rosie O'Donnell.

This is just par for the course; when you get caught with the hand in the cookie jar, use the childish diversion ploy of making it somebody's else fault. To ensure his best chance of repairing what ever is left of his reputation, he attemps to become a media darling by taking on the role of a victim AND pile "it" on the Catholic church, who knows he may someday be a SNAP spokesperson.

Next he will say that he was raised by a pack of wild crocodiles in the everglades!

...but knowing he was from Palm Beach area, and knowing what's all gone on down in that Diocese...

It certainly has traction. Not an excuse, but traction.
